Bollywood actor Govinda, on Thursday, said he would travel in local trains and buses as part of his election campaign even as Congress declared his candidature from North Mumbai parliamentary constituency against union petroleum minister Ram Naik.

Govinda, who received the news of his nomination from chief minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, said it would be his humble attempt to meet the lowest of the lowest in his constituency and try to understand their problems.

I have undergone the trouble and struggled in my early days and would attempt to find out if things have improved or remained same, Govinda told reporters at his residence after meeting Mr Shinde.

Replying to a question, Govinda said he had no intention to be a neta number one as he treated politics as service to the people.

He said his priority would be to see the conditions in his constituency, listen to people and then decide how to act on it and comment on it.
